Christian Author Writer Ezekiel 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

Lately I've been busy thinking some deep thoughts about some heart things. I know it's true that there's much to think on there. Our hearts are at the center of our lives, they make us happy or make us sad, depending on what lives in them. Hearts are filled with memories and emotions and from these opinions and actions are formed. Hearts get hurt and wounded as they suffer sad and traumatic life experiences. Deep in the root of the emotional makeup are hurts and memories which cause us to react in certain ways to whatever is happening all around us. The point I want to make is that the heart is not a plaything. It’s a complex and miraculous creation that only the Creator knows and understands.

We're told in God's word and many preachers are continually reminding us that we have to guard our hearts for out of them flow all the issues of life. As ministers we deal with the hearts and lives of men, just as heart surgeons do. And this is always at our own hearts first. The thoughts and the attitudes of hearts are the candle of the Lord. Only by our submission to Him to be equipped with the necessary skills can we be effective in ministry. We are desperaetly needy of a new and deeper heart yearning for Him above all.

Psalm 84:2 My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

My question to all and to myself is...How can we be anything less than wholeheartedly engaged with Father as we’re being prepared and processed for this high and holy calling?
